There is no doubt that persons with disabilities, senior citizens, children and pregnant women are in high risk at the time of emergency and moreover they are most vulnerable in the country or area where the physical infrastructure, buildings, houses, roads are not well constructed. It is hard to estimate the exact number of persons with disabilities who are affected by the earthquake or died in Nepal by the 25th April's earthquake since there is no any system with government or any other agencies to track disability specific data at the time of emergency and post emergency situation. However, based on the evidences available so far, NFDN can claim that a big number of persons with disabilities have been affected by the disaster.
